Couldn't take heavy rain

Used it on a 10 miles hike(Mailbox new - Washington state) for almost 6 hours in rain: Pros: 1. No need to wear rain pant, it protects you well below knee. 2. Sleeves are perfect and comfortable. 3. I have a 30 Liter backpack and it fits well. 4. Openings on side to access pockets is really helpful. I kept using to check my phone. 5. Feels light and easy to wear. 4. No Smell. 5. Easily packable in the given pouch. Cons: 1. It didn't keep me dry well, my outer layer was little wet. 2. Difficult to wear on a solo hike, had to take help of another hiker when i had a bagpack on back and tried to wear it. Would love to use it for a light rain or emergency purpose. Wont recommend for long hours and heavy rain.

Fit for purpose

Easy to throw on. Good quality at a reasonable price

It needs redesigning

Rain slides from the poncho into your trousers/legs then shoes.

It needs some improvements

Too short, it sticks to your legs so you get the rain sliding down into your trousers and shoes...

Dry but hot.

The hiking poncho is certainly water proof! It did a great job on a recent 3 day hike in NZ. My only criticism is it gets very hot inside, especially if you're hiking up hill. There's no ventilation with this version, so you stay dry from the rain but get a little damp from sweat..

Works well but pricey for what it is.

4 stars because of the poor price-value proposition.

Hi Michael,

Thank you for reviewing our Hiking and Mountain trekking rain cape.

We're glad that you enjoy our product.

It has been designed specifically for hikers to protect them and their belongings during casual hikes.

The innovative design explains a pricier item.

You'll still be able to find entry prices on rain ponchos with our 100 Waterproof fishing poncho for example.

We hope we could provide you with an adequate solution and we look forward to seeing you again soon!

Not waterproof, very disappointed!

Used the poncho for my 96 mile walk, had a backpack on along with tent and sleeping bag. Day 1 had the poncho on as began to rain! Bag was absolutely soaked along with tent and sleeping bag! Very disappointed! Would not recommend!

Great poncho

Great poncho to put on over your clothes when the rain hits. The poncho drys quickly and is lightweight and easy to carry around. Would recommend.

Good value for money.

Best buy excellent.

This is the best buy I have had, Excellent quality, great for over a rucksack and pocket entries so you can reach your garments underneath. Draw string round the hood, good length to the knee I'm 5 foot 6 and went just past knee for me. Actual sleeves too. Reflective strip on back. Waterproof pouch to store. Highly recommend.

My own personal tent!

This is not a bad thing. I bought an XL to make sure it covered down to my knees. There is nothing worse than rain dripping down my bum. It's not just been used for hiking. It's now my goto for when I go to watch football.

Additional Product Information


Main fabric: 100.0% Polyester ; Coating: 100.0% Polyurethane ; Lining: 100.0% Polyester

Fit and sizing information

Good coverage for hikers between 5'1'' and 5'5'' in height in size XSbetween 5'5'' and 5'9'' in size S/Mbetween 5'9'' and 6'3'' in size L/XLand wearing a backpack with a capacity of 0 to 40 litres.The hood can be tightened using an elasticated cord and a stopper.The ends of the sleeves are cuffed with an elastic binding that prevents water from entering your sleeves.This rain cape is easy to get on and off thanks to its long front zip, by easily letting the head through.

Additional recommended products

To complement your outfit, a pair of waterproof over trousers or gaiters is recommended to protect your lower legs perfectly.For greater breathability, the waterproof hat can also be attached to the poncho!

Component waterproofing

We measure a fabric's resistance to water pressure, expressed in terms of the height of a water column in mm (based on the ISO 811 standard). The higher the water pressure, the more waterproof the fabric. Components scoring 2000 mm can resist the pressure from 2000 mm of water (which is equivalent to a rain shower lasting two hours).

Waterproofing of the garment

This garment has been validated in a shower test under 60 litres of water / m² / hour for 2 hours. This test reproduces the average conditions of a rain shower in the mountains.

Component breathability

Our rain poncho and cape ranges do not come with a waterproof/breathable membrane.Therefore, we recommend calm, gentle use to reduce perspiration rather than fast hiking!

Component water resistance

A fabric is water repellent when it allows water slide over its surface without seeping in. This prevents the fabric from soaking up water and keeps it lightweight, warm and breathable. The water repellent property is achieved by treating the fabric's exterior. This treatment needs to be renewed throughout the lifetime of the garment (every 3 washes).All Quechua ponchos and capes have a water-repellent treatment.


We recommend you use a re-waterproofing product (spray or liquid)To renew the fabric's water repellent-properties and optimise the garment's performance throughout its lifetime.

Storage instructions

Long-term storage: dry thoroughly and fold in its bag.
